(Defuniak Springs, FL) Hi 84 Lo 54 -- The forecast called for severe weather today. We were watching the weather closely last night thinking we'd wait till this morning to see if we would be safe traveling to our next location in Montgomery, Alabama. When we got up it was very cloudy, and the radar showed a lot of storms coming across the route we'd be taking, and the storms included large hail and high winds. So Jim went over to the office and paid for another another night. The lady in the office said there are a couple of others that are staying. He also called Maxwell-Gunter AFB in Montgomery, where we had a reservation for today, and told them we'd be there tomorrow. We probably wouldn't have had a problem, but we feel it's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to high winds. This was the first time we've postponed a travel day because of weather. We had a small storm hit late this afternoon but nothing serious. The storms seem to go either north or south of this area.
We watched a lot of TV today. After dinner we went over to the clubhouse to an ice cream social. A new reader of our blog, Betty, invited us to join her and her husband Hoodie. Thank you Betty for the invite.
It was a small turn out because the snowbirds are "flying" north and the park is emptying out. We met some of the people who are still here and had some ice cream and cake.
We came home and did some quick preparations for the move tomorrow. The storms have all gone east, so the weather forecast is great for tomorrow's travel.
